Count the Omer: Day 8


Day 8: Chesed sheb'Gevurah, Loving-kindness within Justice

Support for gay marriage is on the rise, according to a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll and with the issue facing judgement from the Supreme Court, what an excellent time to talk about loving-kindness within Justice!

There are issues that we can look back on in history and think:
"What took them so long?"
"Would I have been on the right side of history if I had lived in that time?"
"Could I have made a difference?"

It is easy to look back with the benefit of hindsight and think that we would have stood up for the right thing, but we will never know how we would have acted if we had lived in a different time and faced a different set of issues. We only have the issues before us today. This week is about justice and strength, so take the time to stand up for something you believe in.
